Dunagan House

-A A +A
1940, Clark Souers and Amos B. Emory. 3424 Oakland Ave.

The Streamline Moderne Dunagan house has been described as a “poured concrete pill box,” as in the contemporary French fortifications along the Rhine (the Maginot Line). The auto is the means of entering the house; the garage is on one side, and a curved cantilevered roof covers the adjacent front entrance.
